Five years ago, I started this freelance business to accommodate the needs of my family better. I had been a managing editor at a book publisher for eight years, which was a dream job. But I longed to have more flexibility in my life and spend more time at home with my little kids. I took a bold leap in May 2013 and left my amazing job to become a freelance editor and writer. It’s been a great decision.
Next week, both of my kids head to full-time school for the first time. This is, of course, an emotional milestone, but I am excited to keep editing and writing and have even more time to build this business. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and given me work over the years. And please keep the work coming!
